Oh My Gosh - where do I start ? I have written this letter ...

no note

umm...had this conversation ?

all of the above a million times and rewritten it a few more times but then this is the gist

I am in India ...

Mumbai actually

at Vogue India to be exact

as the beauty features writer / editorial consultant for Vogue.in

So there I go, that's where I've been and am.

Its been beyond all kinda good and exciting and stressful trying to settle down in Mumbai. I have been ridiculously draining away money on taxis. I think I found a place..haven't sealed the deal yet. Been on my bff's couch - grateful to God she is in Mumbai. Cannot bring myself to give the local trains a try. I was at Lakme Fashion Week - such a giddy feeling seeing all the celebrities and every designer there is !

Soaking Mumbai in. You know all that they say about people falling in love with Mumbai ? Well lets just say all that hasn't happened yet to me.

If you have been a regular Vogue.in reader, especially of the beauty section and you've noticed a new name appearing there, and its been appearing every single day - that's me.

Imma be regular now on. I've missed you bunches and bunches. Every evening on the way home from work I've thought of you and this feels good. Just typing and telling things out to you feels Oh So Good.

Lots of love & miss you even more
Indian Girl

wow congratulations!

You MUST post pics of the fashion shows!

I bet someone at Vogue. in has an idea for a wedding sari designer that's trendy western.

Hook me up! I'm preparing for my weddding in a year, but my mom goes to India next month.

Hey Soos !

How have you been ? Thank you for coming to the blog though I haven't had any updates in a while - this just means the world to me seeing familiar names.

You are amazing and can acheive anything you wish for. :)

I love your blog! You inspired me to start one of my own (http://girlseeksshoe.wordpress.com/). The best thing is that you have the same skin tone as me, so I can safely buy the make-up you use without looking two shades paler :) xx

I am sooo exited for you, IG! Mumbai, Lakme Fashion Week, the Big Smoke!

Can't wait for your update and how you got from Dallas to Mumbai!
